I am a dance & theatre artist| sociocultural anthropologist| womanist theologian|interdisciplinary gender scholar whose work is situated at convergences of arts, health, healing, and activism. Focused on vulnerable bodies’ performance and performative articulation of identity and belonging, I research, teach, and create artistic work that examine the influence of religion, culture, and social practices on the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and societies. I hold particular interest in the lives and aspirations of African Diaspora/Black Atlantic bodies in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
